FCC #135 - "Sketch"

Hello my bloggy friends!
 Welcome to another Funday Friday Challenge.

 This week's challenge is a sketch:
 Our sponsor this week is:

 One lucky winner will receive 3 digis of their choice !!
 So make sure to play along this week~

Starts: Friday, April 22nd 12:00AM (EST)
Ends: Friday, April 29th  6:00PM (EST)

I had so much fun creating with this digital image called 'Magic is in the Air' along with today's sketch.  What do you think?  I just love how it came together!!

 I love beginning a card with a sketch and this one really intrigued me and I can
guarantee you I'll be using it again.

 After printing out this sweet image onto a 4x6 piece of white card stock I
decided on my background paper to use as the basis for my coloring.  Then I got busy using a combination of Spectrum Noir alcohol markers and Spectrum Noir pencils.  I wanted the wings to appear translucent to of course a touch of paper glaze was required (see image below).
 Next my trust Fiskars swivel craft knife came into play.
A few perfectly positioned pop dots helped to give this little fairy flight.
I just received a new grass die cut and it worked perfectly across the bottom of my card.
